Fronha Records

Fronha Records was born in 2002 as an output for experimental electronic music made since the 80's by artists living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The intent is to freely distribute quality music that otherwise would be unavailable or extremely hard to find. The works range from highly experimental soundscapes to almost pop weirdness. In 2004, due to great acceptance and some nice collaborations, we decided to expand our catalogue by releasing stuff by artists from other places that would fit in our profile. You can check out our website for more information.

Pop, decontruction, anarchism, non-sense and a touch of dementia. All this is not enough to describe the musical universe of this work. Followed by CMonjope's electronic structures and DuPont's trombone, Carlinhos Calor uses a very own language in wich he expresses his bizarre ideas, not usually easy to understand.

Liz had developed a unique working technique that does not sound like anything but her own. Surprising cut-ups and obsessive repetitions creating a highly detailed atmosphere that always tells a story. Wich story is up to the listener. This record was mastered at a relatively low volume due to it's high dynamic range. Please listen to it loud and if possible on headphones.

The tracklist on the first Junkers release, compiled and edited by FST, shows the more minimal and obscure side of the project, recorded in two memorable sessions on february 2003. Cláudio Monjope (bass, synth and electronic drum), Fernando STorres (computer, bass and Casio SK1) and MMeNDES (vocal, computer and synth) create a subtle atmosphere, pulsating and obscure, with heavy use of tapes. For the release, each one of the Junkers produced his own version of "Thinking to Kill You".

More than 10 years after playing together for the last time, M., Annexus Can (a.k.a. KKFS & FST) and ZMarfaust, some of the original members of CDG, gathered again for 3 days on 2002 easter holidays to produce the material that gave birth to Normanda's Table. Unlike their cathartic early works, this is a Can do Garfo album where their rational side is much more evident. Minimal and obsessive, with a strong influence from kraut rock and early industrial. For this special release were created...

In this second album on Fronha, Mongha brings you 13 intrumental tracks, in a much more experimental vein than their previous work "Picnic Synthia".

Born from a jam session, Mongha is the fronha records projects that better fits the "band" asthetics, with visible influences from groups like Can and Cabaret Voltaire. Utilizing analogue electronics and processed vocals, Mongha were ZMarfaust [drum machines] MMeNDES [vocals, effects] and CMonjope [synths].

A collaboration between Pan&Tone and (dell.tree) "Belrelax" was recorded in may 2007 at Dj Alma studio, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. A small Ep with only 2 tracks, a registry of the Pan&Tone Microbendingtour in Rio de Janeiro. On the first track, a long experimental glitch with over 20 minutes, MMeNDES plays a synthetizer processed real-time by Cristiano Rosa. On the second, with a strong noise mood, fst appears manipulating piezos and a fetal detector. Highly recommended!!
